Alpine Springs Motel
Ranked #13 of 21 Hotels in Hanmer Springs
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 18, 2011

We only stayed 1 night, but this motel was by far the most luxurious accommodation we've stayed in during our 8 month trip to NZ. Each apartment is it's own self-contained unit. Ours looked out onto the golf course with snow-capped mountains in the background. There was a modern well-equipped kitchen and flat-screen TVs in every room with a larger one in the common room. The bathroom was divine.

It is a 6 minute walk across the golf-course to the hot springs.

We were very pleased we had stumbled onto this gem.

Host is friendly & everything is new! The kitchenette is the best I have seen of my 18days trip. Totally agree with the other reviews and the 3 golden retrievers are awesome!!! Love it here!

On my tour of the South Island there was a few days of heavy rain and a bridge was out at Arthurs Pass. I had to back track and go through the Lewis Pass. My sister booked this motel as a friend of hers had stayed here and said it was OK. We arrived after driving 4 hours longer than anticipated, on a rainy day, having been diverted to somewhere I didn't want to be. I was not in the best frame of mind.

This motel turned out to be one of the best we stayed at during our entire trip.

The room was great, the Spa tub welcome, clean as a whistle, the kitchen had everything we needed, and the bed really comfortable. It was quiet and the surroundings beautiful. The Owner and staff could not have been more helpful which was really appreciated.

All motels should try to get to this standard.

This gem is one of the highlights of our trip to Christchurch and surrounds in November 2010! The room is clean, cosy, and has everything that you need for a family or romantic vacation! The owner/manager is friendly, happy, extremely helpful. The property features a nice garder adjacent to a golf course and a wonderful view. The 3 friendly golden retrievers at the property makes your arrival special and welcome. This is a place that naturally has that extra special quality that comes with the owner's love for his property and people that come through the propertly.

The English couple who now own this motel are working hard to upgrade it. Our apartment was very well-equipped and had a large spa bath. It is on the outskirts of the town but within walking distance of the shops, restaurants etc.
